Not bad. I knew for sure that hania's Alice is Dead would get a Top 5. It was doing ridiculously well in scores. Good to see aliaspharow got a Top 5, he deserves it ^^.

Haven't heard the rest though.

Best of the tops IMO, I quite enjoyed this one. I think more reverb on the woody leads would have helped fill it out and add a bit more atmosphere to the piece.

Rather short for the sort of trance it is.

Getting kinda sick of hania by now. Still, good song. A bit of jazzy chromatic spice here and there, I like that.

Guys, if you post the tops before I get the chance to, would you mind at least numbering them?

This thread is mostly for commetary, on the tops. I believe constructive criticism is meant to go in the reviews section of the songs.

I should have gone back in time to the 80s and told the Cutting Crew to stop being so generic with their title making. I should of taken the initiative :P

:*( Upsetting. Its not bad by any means but all it has going for it is Hania slurring words so they sound mildly sexy (and yea I guess their on key).

Yep, exactly. A good song, but not deserving of its #1 place at all. I hate it when songs get so much recognition just because they're used in a popular flash, and not because they deserve it.

Looks like we have to get use to it though, because her songs will be in the top for a while now.

#1 was really quite discordant, the quality is alright but its upbeat nature and the pitch difference between the guitar and the synths just uglifies the would be nice if it were on tune quality. Its super short and to me sounded a bit gimmicky, but most "high energy songs" come across to me like that. Don't think #1 is the spot for it, but the artist obviously has some talent and hopefully he/she gets some positive page traffic.

#2 felt like a lot of it was just loop repeating, the intro and effects were smoothly integrated and it was nice hearing not just LP filts on everything as per usual with trance music. Freq spectrum felt a bit neglected and that some more harmonies could have filled things out. Drums were standard trance, but didn't have the production behind them to make them maintain my interest. Some neat instruments and choices in the song but overall to me felt like a shell of a song needing more filling out. Good enough though I'm not bothered by its presence in the top 5, though really didn't stand out as a horridly unique peice.

#3 very vooshy and calming, production is nice, knocks on a lot of genre norms which made it less likeable to me, but theres obviously alot of work/time/skill involved here. Not my cup of tea but is worth a listen for those who enjoy trance. High freqs felt a bit left out to me, but I'm using bad headphones atm. The outro is a let down. Happy overall with this one in top 5.

#4 is written with a purpose, fulfills it, and sounds pretty decent. I think it cool Oney does his own music.

#5 is short and rather painful, mix wise doesn't workout too well. The instruments clash a bit with the varied sound waves and pitch differences altering the overtones pitchs.

Meh, I can't remember the last time we had an orchestral piece up there. All we get are Trance, House, VG remixes and the occasional rock song, that is, when the top 5 aren't pieces of random miscellaneous crap.

Well, then again, most NG members don't listen to orchestral anyway.

Guys, by the way:

Sequenced and I agreed that he's taking this stuff over. As I've got a job now, I don't really have the chance to post the tops relatively early on wednesday, so he'll do that instead.

Just keep the old format up Sequenced ;-)

Surprising to see something like this make top 5, as people usually get bored quickly. I enjoyed it though, very eerie piece, would be good to play while sleeping as well.

#2
http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/3 68540

Structure left something to be desired, as there are some builds that don't seem to really lead somewhere. That, and there wasn't much of a low end as some reviews mentioned.
